David Barnes' 1977 New Yorker Brougham

My name is David Barnes and I live in Birnamwood, WI.

The object of my affection is my 77 nyb known as THE SLAB. She has been mine for 2 years. I bought her from the original owner (he says these are the original wheels from factory) she has 114,000 miles and just had the tranny rebuilt (113,000 mi.). Lean burn is functional as is EVERYTHING else (auto-temp,windows,pwr ant,seats, etc..). Engine is 440 still gets 19mpg on hiway. She currently is in storage for the winter she also is down for a bad gas tank (this winters project is everything underneath).

Thank you for your website and all your hard work.
